I've been enjoying Project Greenlight this season. Most specifically all of the dogs that one of the Farrelly brothers has at his house. Anyway the guy keeps pushing for film which I respect, although I think in the context of the project there is nothing that specifically demands film. But do they really not have the budget for even Super 16? I find that pretty hard to believe. I've seen a number of indie movies with similar budgets that managed to shoot film, why not this project for HBO? I realize that it may just be manufactured tension. As a 2nd question, what would it really cost to shoot film on a project like this?
I do super 8 at weddings so I really have no idea. :-)
